Making sure their students will be living on a safe campus is one of the biggest concerns of parents when sending their offspring to college. In addition to the resources already in place at MSU, Sgt. Florene McGlothian-Taylor of MSU Police said there are many proactive measures students can take to remain safe and healthy while attending college.
Such tips include walking in well-lit areas, not walking alone, utilizing the Night Owl service from the Capital Area Transportation Authority, signing up for the MSU Emergency Text Messaging service and locking doors to their residences. And of course, "Anytime you see things suspicious or out of place, call 911 immediately," McGlothian-Taylor said. "Too often, people wait."
